A Tailored Education

A Tailored Education

Well it's something ever homeschool parent faces year after year. The search for the perfect curriculum. Are you guilty of ordering a curriculum that you planned on using year after year through all of your kids only to find out it worked for one and not the other? Your not alone. I remember when I first started homeschooling my son, I purchased Abeka. I loved Abeka and still do. He did great in it and so when my middle daughter was school age we jumped right in with Abeka. First it started out ok but then the trouble began. My daughter was struggling with phonics and reading and I started pulling my hair out! Why wasn't this curriculum working ? I though I was failing my daughter because she wasn't  understanding phonics and was really struggling to read. So after lots of prayer I came to the conclusion that Abeka was not for her. What was I going to do? I searched the internet over for a curriculum that would work for her needs. This began my journey of a tailored curriculum for my daughter. She learned so differently that I just backed up to the basics of reading, writing and math. We started with the Bob Books which worked really well for her and also purchased Zoo Phonics. If your child struggles with phonics I highly recommend Zoo Phonics. She started reading and feeling very proud of her accomplishments. Then we backed up to basic math facts and just learning to count to 100. And for writing we worked on letters and words to make sure she was forming words correctly. As she progressed we added harder subjects and to this day we tailor her curriculum to fit her needs. That's why I created my curriculum books. I specifically made them for her. She has excelled in these books and finds joy in homeschooling. She has progressed with her tailored education and I couldn't be happier. Don't be afraid to toss out the curriculum that doesn't work. God made each of us unique and we all learn differently. Find what works and go from there because your child's education is worth it. Make your homeschool work for you and your family and don't worry about what other homeschoolers are doing. We all learn to read and write and do math just at different rates, and that's all that matters. Happy homeschooling!

Hello everyone!


Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
